thoughts of my own. many of us are apprehensive about government health-care because we did not know how it works in other countries. we just wonder how what will work here. part of that comes from the experiences we have when we deal directly, one-on-one, with the government, with the so-called faceless bureaucrats, when they have faces, but sometimes, they are rather sullen faces, not helpful faces, basis that say no. for example, fresh in my mind is the agency in washington where i went recently to get some more cages put in his passport. they just blow in their additional pages because there are too many stamps. that is not rocket science. that does not require any special thing except some pages in the pace pot. i went over, and they said i had to bring my itinerary because they wanted in a hurry. i cannot turn my passport away for six weeks, so i went away and got the itinerary, which is also rather silly because with a computer, you could make an itinerary rather easily. they let me in, and i was given a number. have had an line, and i got a number. they put me together with t

abt the roman world that we bring with us to this day and it's very important to understand those roots. in fact, i have several books that are going to touch on this. when i was growing up, in the - 1960s and the 1970s, one early thing that clung to me was this fear of decline. in large part it was driven by my understanding of the military history. it was duringthe vietnam war. i'd seen the fall of saigon and i thought, you know, this could be it. this could be the riots in the streets and the social upheaval and revolution and and so for me when i grow up to be an active participant in public affairs, my goal is to stop this decline. among the books i read on this was one you probably have never heard of. it was a book by montischu. it was the considerations of the greatness of the romans and their decline. that's what i wanted to know. now, in lieu -- if you can't find that book, virtually equally good one is machiavelli discourses. he's concerned with thearious same question these are both very practical books ty look at roman history but they're trying to draw eternal lesso
